department did. that's the kind of question they're going to ask david petraeus. but here is the problem with bengha benghazi. it was a huge cia base. and what were they doing down there? were they simply buying up arms off the local market, surface to air missiles? even some are arguing that this attack on september 11th had something to do with an arms deal that went bad and there are rumor that is possibly this cia unit or somebody down there was buy i buying arms to send to syria. i frankly discount them all. i see no evidence of it. somebody has to give us the answers. this is why this controversy is carried on so long because there's absolutely no clarity. we, as americans, want to know why four american diplomats were killed. >> let's specifically -- there is word that the people on the ground in benghazi, libya, cried out for help and help did not come. >> i think it's clear that the ambassador, who was murdered, did express doubts to washington about the security. there was no backup. the problem is, if there was a seven-hour gun battle for that consulate, that's not fast enough
testimony tomorrow on capitol hill. cnn has learned david petraeus will acknowledge he knew almost immediately after the attack that it was the work of al sharia, a militia groupli linke to al-qaeda. this is a significant dwom. it was five days after the benghazi incident when susan rice went on the sunday talk shows an said the attack grew out of a spontaneous demonstration against an antimuslim video. let's get right to the breaking report right now. barbara starr is at the pentagon. you've been breaking this. tell us what you're learning tonight about david petraeus' testimony on benghazi. >> i've spoken to a source close to petraeus, directly familiar with petraeus' thinking on this matter. petraeus, we are told, wants to go to the hill, set the record straight and tell everything he knows. he will start by saying indeed that he knew almost immediately after that it was ansar al sharia, but there was also confusion. he had about 20 intelligence reports linking the attacks to that video, that anti-islamic video. those reports were disproven, but not until after he had briefed ca
in the david petraeus sex scandal. house and senate leaders want to know why they were never given the heads up on the investigation that led petraeus to resign as a cia director over an extramarital affair. with that resignation, petraeus might not have to testify this week at a congressional hearing on the benghazi consulate attack. cnn's barbara starr is following that story from the pentagon. good morning. >> good morning, soledad. well, look, at least at this point, there's no indication publicly of a national security breach. but that doesn't mean the questions aren't growing. lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are questioning the timing behind the revelation. house majority leader eric cantor said an fbi employee told him in october about the petraeus affair. by that time an fbi investigation was already under way. the fbi told the director of national intelligence james clapper on election night, according to a senior u.s. intelligence official. the white house says it was notified the day after the election, and the president the following day. that doesn't make sense to house homela

. >> there are so many facets to this. tomorrow, david petraeus is going to testify or talk to leaders of the senate and house intelligence committees about the attacks in benghazi. this is a closed-door session, though, barbara. do you have any idea what's going to be discussed? >> well, we are told indeed closed door petraeus wanted to voluntarily come and talk to them about what he knew, you know, nobody is saying what it is that he's actually going to say. but we've talked to some people close to petraeus and the indications are he's going to try and explain this whole issue that dan was talking about. when they thought it was a terrorist attack, what they knew about it, who they thought might be responsible and whether or not that whole situation? cairo at the time about the demonstration over an anti-islamic film may have played a role. you had a very murky situation, john. >> barbara starr at the pentagon this morning. thanks very much. >>> 11 minutes past the hour. coming up, how the president will pay personal attention to the victims of sandy. that's scheduled to happen just hours from now
